What better way to highlight the fantastic work of Great Ormond Street hospital than hold an event attended by a grown up former patient in the fit of his health? We were honoured to recently offer furniture that had been reduced by 75 per cent for a fundraising street party organised by legal organisation Old Square Chambers for this hallmark British hospital.
Very Important Person...
The event held near Chancery Lane invited residents and those holding some of the highest legal positions in the UK, including barristers, judges and members of the Queen’s Counsel. Undoubtedly the VIP guest was a young man who had life saving surgery at the hospital when he was just a young child. He’s since grown into a young man who’d just completed his first stint of work experience.
Hampers and Champers?
Arranged by Old Square Chambers, the street party featured a raffle of amazing prices to boost funds for the charity, including a luxury Fortnum and Mason hamper, afternoon tea at the Ritz and a £200 voucher towards dinner at the five star Rosewood London Hotel, to name but a few!
Much more than a standard street party, this event offered lots in the way of entertainment and tasty food and drink - and what better cause to raise money for. Guests could hook a duck, enjoy popcorn, candy floss and try out their footy skills via an inflatable football booth. There was live music as well that flowed across the entire street bringing a real party vibe to the event.
Street smart seating
We took the opportunity to take some photos of our outdoor furniture that we hired to the legal company at a reduced price for the occasion. Our aluminium stools, bistro chairs, folding chairs and bistro/poseur tables are a very versatile option, and as you can see, they’re a great choice for outdoor seating for fun events like this - especially when you’re not sure of the weather, as they’re water resistant.
They’re also an option for indoor seating too, and our photos show how our chrome stool and poseur range also complemented the stylish decor inside Old Square Chambers, as well as outside. We hope all who attended the street party had a fantastic time and would like to say it was a pleasure to provide furniture for such a worthy event.
